Source code for "Worms?" by David S. Maynard. The game was published by Electronic Arts in 1983, but the printout seems to be from 1987. Maynard retained copyright to the code and has allowed me to share it here. There seem to be several versions in the printout stacks. I have bundled the files in the same manner that David provided the printouts. That is, each unbroken stack of sheetfed paper is in its own file. David has donated the original printouts to The Strong Museum of Play....

Atari at the Science Fair: Scott Ryder: Atari-Controlled Robot Here's an article from The Fresno Bee (Fresno, California) dated April 15, 1982: "Science proves Fair game to young minds".

Over the years many of the people I've interviewed have generously sent me all different kinds of historical Atari material — including source code, schematics, documentation, books and articles, and design documents — and allowed me to share them. This is the first time someone has sent me a professionally produced song they created for Atari. After I published my interview with Suzanne Ciani, she sent me an email: she had found an unpublished Atari spot in her archives. It's a tune titled...

Several mixes of "My Atari" by Suzanne Ciani, an unpublished, unfinished song she created for Atari circa 1981-1984. Posted to Internet Archive with her permission. Lyrics: I've been to lots of places There's more I wanna see And being young is all that's stopping me Beyond my time I know there's more A whole world waiting to explore But I can't seem to get past my back door But when I sit At my Atari I know the world is mine And the future is my time When I sit At my Atari There's no...

The program was created by three people — who were not only the on-air voices, but did all the work around the program: getting advertisers, buying air...

You'll need swords, seamanship, political guile, but most of all inline hints to tackle Infocom's ill-conceived first foray into graphical adventures. Kay and Carrington find their patience tested in a game where, ironically, the most frequently used command is 'wait'.

Kay and Carrington take a victory lap after finishing all of the Infocom text-only adventures. Turn on verbose mode and light the brass lantern, it's time to take a look back at what they liked best, and least, from these classic games.

Transcripts of six interviews conducted by the radio show "The Famous Computer Cafe" circa 1985. The transcripts are all dated Nov. 4 1985 -- I believe that is the date they were transcribed, not the date of the interview. The interviews could have been done as early as 1983, when The Famous Computer Cafe began. Transcripts are of: Timothy Leary, Donny Osmond, Douglas Adams and Steve Meretzky (Infocom's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game), Frank Herbert (author of the Dune...
